DDN | EXAScaler™
Massively Scalable, High Performance, Open Source File Storage Appliance
Ease of Management and Deployment
Arrives at your door as a fully configured appliance that makes Lustre simple to deploy and manage
Consolidates storage hardware, RAID, operating system, data protection features and the Lustre file system into
a single, easy to use platform
No cables or external servers required
Delivers the flexibility to choose the right deployment model – from external servers and interconnect to
DDN | In-Storage Processing™ that lowers TCO
Reduces Lustre deployments from weeks to hours
Scalable Appliance Eliminates Complexity
Allows seamless & simple expansion on demand:
- Individually scale-out performance by adding: EXAScaler file serving nodes
- Individually scale-up capacity by adding DDN high density disk enclosures
Provides large scale building blocks to architect hyperscale file systems with the least number of components
Enables building a solution based on your budget for optimized & predictable TCO
Supercharged Blueprint
Combines DDN's award winning storage technology with the open-source Lustre File System
Blueprint that is known worldwide as the gold standard in HPC storage
Eliminates vendor lock in
Thriving open source community consisting of OpenSFS, European Open File System and Intel's Whamcloud™
Impressive track record and roadmap of enhancements to Lustre scalability, reliability and data
management features
Designed for Scale
Powers more of the world's fastest file systems than any other solution
Supports scalable volume and namespace – from a few TBs to greater that 10PB volumes
